The meeting on Friday, December 16, 2022 was an extra special time to gather and share fellowship among our Dublin community members in honor of Dana McDaniel, recently retired Dublin City Manager. 
More on Dana McDaniel:
Dana led Dublin in its growth as the Economic Development Director and its City Manager for the past 34 years. Over his career, Dana has been instrumental in the success of many Dublin AM Rotary projects. A recent meaningful project is the newly installed Peace Poll, located in Coffman Park, which displays the phrase “MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH” in twelve languages.  
Across the community, Dana was instrumental in Dublin establishing Dublink, the state-of-the-art broadband fiber optic network. He was the vision behind the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center, which currently supports more than 100 start-up businesses. Dana and his economic development teams have overseen programs resulting in the attraction, retention and expansion of more than 14,000 jobs. Under Dana’s leadership, the City of Dublin was twice named one of the top seven smart cities in the world by the New York-based Intelligent Community Forum. The City has also received numerous awards.
Dana also retired from the Ohio National Guard following a 35-year distinguished career, retiring as a Brigadier General and is an Iraq war veteran.
